He wishes for the cloths of heaven

"Wheat Field with Cypresses" by Vincent Van Gogh

HAD I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

- W.B. Yeats

I love this beautiful recital from the movie " 84 Charing Cross Road" on YouTube :
